I had a gastric sleeve - which means 80% of my stomach was surgically removed. The clock was reset and the years of abuse my body suffered at my hands ended. I was able to start to love myself, and fall in love with a healthier lifestyle that actually stuck!
So here we are, 2021 and I am 11.5stone lighter. I have the ability now to do the things I always wanted to do but was either too big or too scared to do.
I have an Instagram page which documents my journey so far - so if you would like to know more please head over and look for @reducingruth.
I am not usually one to ask for help, or to talk about my body and the struggles I have had. This is so important to me that I can't stay silent when there is an opportunity to change my life for the better.
I hope you will consider helping me in any way you can.
Lots of love,
